Millicoma Marsh

We went birding yesterday morning at the south end of Coos Bay at Millicoma Marsh.  I had read about the area in the pamphlet “Oregon Coast Birding Trail”, and it turned out to be an amazing place to bird. The large number and variety of small birds, like sparrows, had us stumped for identification several times. Then there was also the large number of water fowl on the bay.  In fact after a quick break for lunch in the motor home we went back with the scope to help us make some positive identifications.  We logged a record number of 30 birds, and I was able to add photos of a King Fisher and a Greater Yellowlegs to Cascade Ramblings.
